Kermit Gosnell Murder Trial Jury Retires With No Verdict Yet
The jury in the Kermit Gosnell murder trial has retired for the day and has not delivered a verdict related to the babies he killed in grisly abortion-infanticides.
If sentenced for the convictions, Gosnell could face the death penalty following the convictions by the jury in Common Pleas Court in Philadelphia.
Prosecutor: My Dog Treated Better Than Gosnell Treated Babies, Women
With lead prosecutor Joanne Pescatore wiping away tears, Assistant Ed Cameron gave an impassioned plea for justice in the final moments of his closing arguments in the Kermit Gosnell murder trial that left an impression on the gallery and most likely the jury.
Cameron had the last word for the jurors yesterday as he began by meticulously summarized the testimony of the 54 witnesses who testified in this capital murder case where Gosnell faces four counts of first degree murder for severing the spinal cords of babies born alive during illegal late-term abortions done amidst squalid conditions with grossly unqualified, poorly trained staff. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/04/30/prosecutor-my-dog-treated-better-than-gosnell-treated-babies-women/
Mother Finds Out Aborted Baby Feet Gosnell Kept Belonged to Her Baby

In a new column at USA Today, writer Kirsten Powers focuses on the story of Desiree Hawkins. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/04/30/mother-finds-out-aborted-baby-feet-gosnell-kept-belonged-to-her-baby/
FDA Approves Sale of Plan B Morning After Pill to Teenagers
The FDA made it official today saying the morning after pill known as Plan B should be available without a prescription for teenagers starting at age 15.

Jury of Seven Women, Five Men Hold Kermit Gosnells Fate in Their Hands
The trial of Philadelphia abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell, facing the death penalty for the deaths of four infants and one woman in his clinic, is over. America has moved on.
Its exactly what the pro-abortion contingent wants. They want Gosnell out of the news because they want abortion out of the news. Ongoing discussion provokes thought about the status quo. And pro-aborts want to keep things as they are. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/04/30/jury-of-seven-women-five-men-hold-kermit-gosnells-fate-in-their-hands/
Gosnell Attorneys Racism Charges Ignore How He Killed Newborn Babies
Kermit Gosnells defense attorney laid out his case for acquittal on five counts of murder but the specifics were telegraphed as far back as the trials opening statements six weeks ago.

Planned Parenthood Clinic Temporarily Closes After Botching Abortions
